Available to CSP (and AK) members for $30 a PAIR. And the included knobs are genuine DakaWare just like the originals (if you don’t need knobs I’ll knock off $2/pr)

Send me a PM

edit: Now includes ring terminals and lock washers. See 4th post, below.

2nd edit: Now includes large stainless steel lock washer as well. New picture attached to this post.

3rd edit: The next batch (Dec 2022) will have blue crimp connectors to accommodate thicker wires

I’ve put these on that auction site but CSP members can still get them at this price by PMing me here (I’m geekyshrink not that guy from Brooklyn).

Postage usually runs about $10 to $16.

JKent,

one question: please diameter in mm., original Aetna = 32.5 mm. 

Holes in masonite between potentiometer measure 43 mm., it is possible install a pair potentiometers with a  diameter max of 42 mm. in AR3a /2a etc.

Hi Kent it’s Paul, display name is (Sporch) from  Australia. As you advised, Ive just joined classic speaker pages regarding the level control units that you are selling. 
At this time I would like to purchase 4 pots now for my AR5 and possibly a further 2 for my AR4X in the near future. 

could you please let me know what the total cost is to ship  4 units including postal/ shipping costs. 
 

i thank you for all your help and patience and would really appreciate it if from time to time if I could pick your brain on speaker restoration. 

Kind regards 

Paul

I bought four of these heavy little guys.  They are 16 ohm 25 watt.  The ones AR used originally were Aetna-Pollacks at 15 ohm.  The 1 ohm difference is negligible.

With these replacement potentiometers, the additional resistor which the L-pad approach requires is not needed.  JKent's included directions are clear and the optional hardware and knobs are a nice option at a great price.  👍

Hi Jkent,

I'm tired of messing with these old pots so I was just wondering how huge is huge?  I could order enough for 5 pr. of speakers.  Hope there is enough interest for more orders.

Thanks,  PeteZ

Update Jan 13, 2022

The factory informs me I should have these within 3 weeks (so expect 1st week in Feb). I will post updates here. The wholesale price increased but I was able to negotiate a little by buying more so I can hold the line for CSP and AK members at $30 per PAIR including crimp connectors, lock washers and genuine Daka-Ware knobs or $28/pr without knobs.

This was my 3rd lot of 100 pieces (actually 120 this time around). Each time I say I'm not doing it again but within about 3 weeks I've sold more than 80 so I guess there's still a demand. Only about 32 (16 pair) left.

They're Baaack!

UPS tells me they will be delivered today, April 6, 2022. Please PM me with your  needs and I'll communicate further by email so the in-box doesn't fill up.

I'm now supplying them with red crimp connectors that are the correct size for 18AWG wire. Also figured out how to use a lock washer to prevent rotation so those are included as well. Keeping the price at $30/pair for CSP and AK members, plus shipping.
